This, my second Christmas CD, might as well have been titled “By Request”.

Through the years, since I started with the Christmas concerts in Braendkjaer Church in Kolding in 1993 – a tradition that has now grown into a country wide tour, this year comprising 28 concerts in three weeks – I have often been asked by my loyal concertgoers, usually in connection with the by now also very traditional autograph signing following the concerts: “When will this or that song be released on CD?”

So, here they are! Well, most of them at least. The whole idea behind the release of ”When You Wish upon a Star” (Når du ser et stjerneskud) was to choose the best of the songs we have done over the years, but never recorded. I am also very pleased with the fact that the nucleus of the musicians and choir singers participating on this CD, are actually the same people who have been on the Christmas tours with me for many, many years.

In my own opinion “When You Wish upon a Star” and “Christmas Candles” (Julelys) from 1998 supplement each other really well. Where “Christmas Candles” had a string of solemn Christmas songs and –hymns, “When You Wish upon a Star” pays homage to the rhythmic, contemporary, American inspired genre. As a small curiosity I decided to include “O Holy Night” on this new Christmas CD. This song was also released on the first CD, but in Danish and in a more classical version. On “When You Wish upon a Star” this number has been allowed to blossom in the best American Gospel style.

Enjoy and Merry Christmas!

1. Nu tændes tusind julelys

 

Nu tændes tusind julelys
Det stråler på vor jord
Og himlens stjerner blinker ned
Til lille og til stor

Og over land og by i nat
Går julens glade bud
Om ham, som fødtes i en stald
Vor frelser og vor gud

Du stjerne over Betlehem
Send dine stråler ned
Og mind os om at julens bud
Er kærlighed og fred

Til hvert et fattigt hjerte send
Et lysstrejf ned fra sky
Så finder det den rette vej
Og det bli’r jul på ny

Til hvert et fattigt hjerte send
Dit lysstrejf ned fra sky
Så finder det den rette vej
Og det bli’r jul på ny

2. Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas

 

Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Let your dreams be light
From now on our troubles will be out of sight

Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Make the yuletide gay
From now on our troubles will be miles away

Here we are as in olden days
Happy golden days of yore
Faithful friends who are dear to us
Gather near to us once more

Through the years we all will be together
If the fates allow
Hang a shining star upon the highest bow
And have yourself a merry little Christmas now

Here we are as in olden days
Those happy golden days of yore
Faithful friends who are dear to us
They gather near to us once more

Through the years we all will be together
If the fates allow
Hang a shining star upon the highest bow
And have yourself a merry little Christmas now

3. O Holy Night

 

O holy night
The stars are brightly shining
It is the night of our dear saviour’s birth

Long lay the world
In sin and error pining
Till he appeared and the soul felt its worth

A thrill of hope
The weary world rejoices
For yonder breaks
A new and glorious morn’

Fall on your knees
O hear the angel voices

O night divine
O night when Christ was born
O night divine
O night, o night divine

Truly He taught us
To love one another
His word is law and His gospel is peace

Chains shall He break
For the slave is your brother
And in His name all oppression shall cease

Sweet hymns of joy
In grateful chorus raise we
Let all within us
Praise His holy name

O fall on your knees
O hear the angel voices

O night divine
O night when Christ was born
O night divine
O night
O holy night

4. Jule-medley

 

Julen kommer førend vi ved
Lille Peter gemmer på en julehemmelighed
men lidt må han fortælle, sådan er jo nemlig børn
og derfor hvisker Peter til sin gamle teddybjørn:
Jeg så julemanden kysse mor
i går aftes i den mørke gang
Jeg selv var lagt i seng
som en artig lille dreng
men døren stod på klem
og ud af dynerne jeg sprang
Så så jeg julemanden kysse mor!
Hun blev ikke vred, nej ikke spor
men ih, hvor far dog havde leet
hvis han havde stået og set
julemanden sådan kysse mor!

Juleknas, flitter og stads
to små børn lytter ved døren
De hører tit mystiske skridt
"Det er vist ham, gik han forbi?
Det var en skam, nu håber vi
det må være ham der banker derude”
Du kære gamle julemand
var kun et eventyr
som i en duft af julegran
hersker i barnets juleland
og vækker vild postyr
En illusion er bristet brat
netop en julenat
Trist at man når man får forstand
mister sin tro på en julemand
som retter julens glæder an

Nu begynder julen jo at banke på
Vi sætter hanke på og klipper julehjerter
Lille skat, der gav du mig en god ide
Nu må du ikke le
Nej nej, min egen ven, hvad er der?

Skal vi klippe vore julehjerter sammen?
I en præstegård med rigtig julesne
Jeg kan tydeligt høre lænkehundens glammen
Mens de glade spurve flyr om fugleneg
Og hvis blot du er vaks
Med lidt lim og en saks
Så bli’r hjerterne straks
Af den rigtige slags
Skal vi klippe vore julehjerter sammen?
Jeg vil tro at de bli’r bedst når man er to
Jeg vil tro at de bli’r bedst når man er to

5. Winter Wonderland

 

Sleigh bells ring, are you listening?

Sleigh bells ring, are you listening?
In the lane snow is glistening
A beautiful sight, we’re happy tonight
Walking in a winter wonderland

Gone away is the bluebird
Here to stay is a new bird
He sings a love song as we go along
Walking in a winter wonderland

In the meadow we can build a snowman
Then pretend that he is Parson Brown
He’ll say: are you married? We’ll say: no man
But you can do the job when you’re in town

Later on we’ll conspire
As we dream by the fire
To face unafraid the plans that we’ve made
Walking in a winter wonderland

Sleigh bells ring, are you listening?
In the lane snow is glistening
A beautiful sight, we’re happy tonight
Walking in a winter wonderland

Gone away is the bluebird
Here to stay is a new bird
He sings a love song as we go along
Walking in a winter wonderland

In the meadow we can build a snowman
And pretend that he’s a circus clown
We’ll have lots of fun with Mr. Snowman
Until the alligators knock him down

When it snows ain’t it thrillin’?
Though your nose gets a chillin’
We’ll frolic and play the Eskimo way
Walking in a winter wonderland
Walking in a winter wonderland
Walking in a winter wonderland

6. Christmas Song

 

I'm not dreaming of a white Christmas
I'm not dreaming of a white Christmas
All I'm dreaming of the whole day long
Is a peaceful one

I'm not dreaming of a white Christmas
I'm not dreaming of a white Christmas
All I'm dreaming of the whole day long
Is a peaceful one

Merry Christmas, happy New Year
To those of you who live in fear
And let us hope that very soon
The peace you seek will then resume

I'm not dreaming of a white Christmas
I'm not dreaming of a white Christmas
All I'm dreaming of the whole day long
Is a peaceful, peaceful one

I'm not dreaming of a white Christmas
I'm not dreaming of a white Christmas
All I'm dreaming of the whole day long
Is a peaceful one, oh

Merry Christmas, happy New Year
To those of you who live in fear
And let us hope that very soon
The peace you seek will then resume

I'm not dreaming of a white Christmas
I'm not dreaming of a white Christmas
All I'm dreaming of the whole day long
Is a peaceful, peaceful one

7. Blue Christmas

 

 

I'll have a blue Christmas without you
I'll be so blue thinking about you
Decorations of red on a green Christmas tree
Won't be the same if you're not here with me

And when those blue snowflakes start fallin'
And when those blue memories start callin’
You'll be doin' alright with your Christmas of white
Oh, but I'll have a blue, blue Christmas


Decorations of red on a green Christmas tree
Just won't be the same if you're not here with me

And when those blue snowflakes start fallin’
And when those blue, blue memories start callin'
You'll be doin' alright with your Christmas of white
Oh, but I'll have a blue, blue, blue, blue Christmas
A blue, blue, blue, blue Christmas
A blue, blue Christmas
A blue Christmas

8. Lille Messias

 

En stjerne på himlen og flere og flere
I nat føder himlen med jordiske veer
I nat lover himlen at den vil befri os
Maria på æslet med lille Messias

Maria skal føde sin glæde med smerte
Der banker et hjerte bag vinterens kærte
Selv kulden og mørket har håb de vil gi’ os
Maria på æslet med lille Messias

Hun bærer på barnet, nu føler hun veen
Et hjerte så trodsigt som spurvens i sneen
En krybbe til vugge for den som skal fri os
Maria på æslet med lille Messias

Og han som bar verden bar hun som var kvinde
Som æslet bar hende da tiden var inde
Fred lyder det råb som nu genlyder i os
Maria på æslet med lille Messias

I nat ruger himlen på glæden og freden
Så varsomt i mørket som fuglen i reden
Og freden og glæden nu fødes de i os
Maria på æslet med lille Messias

En plads mellem får i en stald mellem stude
Hun fødte og svøbte den lille i klude
Og hyrdernes glæde var stor som Marias
Lys tændtes i mørket, nu fødtes Messias

Nu fødtes Messias

9. Ding dong! Merrily on high

 

Ding dong! Merrily on high
In heav’n the bells are ringing
Ding dong! Verily the sky
Is riv’n with angel-singing

Gloria! Hosanna in excelsis!

E’en so here below, below
Let steeple bells be swungen
And i-o, i-o, i-o
By priest and people sungen

Gloria! Hosanna in excelsis!

Pray you, dutifully prime
Your matin chime, ye ringers
May you beautifully rhyme
Your evetime song, ye singers

Gloria! Hosanna in excelsis! top

 

10. Please Come Home For Christmas

 

Bells will be ringing the glad, glad news
Oh, what a Christmas to have the blues
My baby’s gone, I have no friends
To wish me greetings once again

Choirs will be singing Silent Night
Those Christmas carols by candlelight
Please come home for Christmas
Please come home for Christmas
If not for Christmas by New Year’s night

Friends and relations send salutations
As sure as the stars shine above
But this is Christmas, yes, Christmas my dear
The time of year to be with the one you love

So won’t you tell me you’ll never more roam?
And that Christmas and New Year will find you home
There’ll be no more sorrow, no, no grief and pain
And I’ll be happy that it’s Christmas once again
Once again


Friends and relations send salutations
Just as sure as the stars shine above
But this is Christmas, yes, Christmas my dear
The time of year to be with the one that you love
And that’s me

So won’t you tell me you’ll never more roam?
And that Christmas and New Year is gonna find you home
There’ll be no more sorrow, no, no grief and pain
Cause I’ll be happy that it’s Christmas once again
I’ll be oh so happy
I’ll be happy, yeah
I’ll be happy that you’re here with me
And that it’s Christmas
Once again

11. Happy Christmas (War Is Over)

 

So this is Christmas
And what have you done?
Another year over
A new one just begun

And so this is Christmas
I hope you have fun
The near and the dear ones
The old and the young

A very merry Christmas
And a happy New Year
Let's hope it's a good one
Without any fear

So this is Christmas
For weak and for strong
The rich and the poor ones
The road is so long

And so happy Christmas
For black and for white
For yellow and red ones
Let's stop all the fights

A very merry Christmas
And a happy New Year
Let's hope it's a good one
Without any fear

So this is Christmas
And what have we done?
Another year over
A new one just begun

And so happy Christmas
We hope you have fun
The near and the dear ones
The old and the young

A very merry Christmas
And a happy New Year
Let's hope it's a good one
Without any fear

War is over
If you want it
War is over
Now...

12. I krybben i stalden
(Away in a manger) I krybben i stalden, på lejet af strå
lå det lille barn Jesus, som hyrderne så
i stjernernes skær fik han kærtegn og kram
Maria og Josef de elskede Ham

Det støjende kvæg var en skræmmende lyd
men Han lå der så stille og salig af fryd
Maria forstod nu, at Herren var nær
og hun følte i hjertet, at Han har os kær

Så bad hun til Gud, ved sin elskede søn
Vær hos os og hør nu min ydmyge bøn
tag alle i favn og velsign dem og mig
da mødes vi alle i Himlen hos Dig

13. Når du ser et stjerneskud

 

Tit har man fortalt
At hver gang en stjerne faldt
Menneskenes børn i samme time
Fik lov at ønske alt

Når du ser et stjerneskud
Lad dit ønske flyve ud
Da vil alle stjerners herre høre dig

Bare du af hjertet tror
Da er ingen bøn for stor
Når et stjerneskud der falder på din vej

Skæbnen selv er da din lykkes smed
Den smiler til dig ned fra himlens stjerner

Når du ser et stjerneskud
Da er det et himlens bud
Om at du skal vinde hvad du ønsker dig

Skæbnen selv er da din lykkes smed
Den smiler til dig ned fra himlens stjerner

Når du ser et stjerneskud
Da er det et himlens bud
Om at du skal vinde hvad du ønsker nu

Bonustrack: Du løfter mig (You Raise Me Up)
2007 release only Når jeg er trist, - og alting føles værre
og store sorger tynger sindet ned
så venter jeg i stilhed på Dig Herre
- da kommer du med al din kærlighed

Du løfter mig til bjergets høje tinde
du løfter mig - din kraft er så enorm
det’ hos Dig, at jeg min trøst skal finde
hjælp mig at modstå fristelser og storm

Du skaber liv og lys og megen glæde
selv når mit hjerte slår så bange slag
jeg bliver stærk, hver gang du er til stede
for du velsigner jo min dagligdag

Du bringer håb, når håbet ellers smuldrer
du gi’r mig livsmod - du er livets salt
og når jeg sidder højt på dine skuldre
så føler jeg, at jeg kan klare alt!

Det er din nåde, jeg så tit har mærket
og evighedens lys, det skimter jeg
det’ din frelse, som er skaberværket
- så tag imod min store tak til Dig

Ja, tag imod min store tak til Dig
